Pear and balsamic vinegar make quite the flavor combination. It’s tangy and sweet, all at the same time. Add to that the savory pizza dough and Dairy-Free Cheese Spread, and well, you’ve just taken me to flavor heaven. I’m going to stay awhile.
¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
1 yellow onion
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
2 tablespoons olive oil
sprinkle sea salt
½ teaspoon lemon juice
½ cup Dairy-Free Cashew Cheese
¼ cup Pecans, chopped
Preheat the oven to 425 ̊F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the balsamic vinegar and coconut palm sugar in a saucepan. Mix well. Bring to a simmer. Cook until the mixture becomes thick and syrupy—about 5 minutes.
Place the onion, thyme, and olive oil in a small skillet. Cook over medium heat until the onions are soft. Sprinkle the salt over the onions in the skillet. Cook for 2 more minutes then remove from heat.
Thinly slice the pear and sprinkle with the lemon juice.
Arrange a pre-baked pizza crust on your prepared baking sheet. Spread the Dairy-Free Cheese Spread evenly over the crust. Use your fingers! Top with the cooked thyme onions. Top with the sliced pears. Top with chopped pecans. Bake for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with fresh thyme and a drizzle of the balsamic syrup. Enjoy!
